Fremont / Mooresville – Solaria Corporation, global provider of solar module technologies, and, Linel, a premier fabricator of customized architectural glass and metal products, today announced that architects can now access building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) solutions, from Linel, powered-by-Solaria. For decades, Linel has taken projects from design to installation as a full life-cycle subcontractor whose materials and suppliers are directly influenced by the needs of project architects. Linel now offers BIPV sloped glazing systems to answer a growing demand for architectural solar solutions from building developers and designers producing leading edge plans for new projects.

"We're always looking for new ways to add value to our sloped glazing projects, and Solaria's PowerView™ BIPV is a product that offers impressive solar performance without compromising aesthetic quality," said Brian Murphy, Product Design Engineer, Linel. "The economic benefit is clear, the contribution toward sustainability is real, and the design is flexible. We believe the industry is poised to embrace BIPV sloped glazing in a major way, and this partnership has Linel and Solaria ready to provide an industry-leading system."

Linel has built a reputation for designing and delivering a full spectrum of high-performance architectural products, and partnering with innovative suppliers to meet the most creative and demanding design specifications. By offering architectural solar solutions powered-by-Solaria, Linel can address the architectural community’s increasing demand for solar skylights, atriums, clerestories, sunshades, patios and canopies. Now, in addition to typical rooftop photovoltaic systems and louver photovoltaic systems, Linel will capitalize on the opportunity to establish the company as a recognized market leader as architectural solar grows to significant volume.

“Solaria has been cultivating the architectural solar market as its momentum grows into true industry-wide adoption. After establishing a number of significant partnerships in the vertical façade of medium to large projects, Solaria is proud of this strategic expansion into sloped glazing applications,” said Udi Paret, GM Building Solutions, Solaria Corporation. “Solaria is excited to be the premier provider of architectural solar solutions to Linel and differentiate them as a leading providing of solar skylights and solar sloped glazing solutions.”

Solaria’s PowerXT® rooftop solar solutions provide high-performance solar panels that produce up to 20% more energy than conventional modules. These high-density solar panels are optimized for rooftop applications and leverage a highly refined manufacturing process which results in a significantly higher energy yield than typical PV modules. It not only delivers high power but also improved shading tolerance, premium appearance and durability. Solaria’s PowerView™ architectural glass solutions deliver the unique combination of attractive aesthetics, compelling economics, high performance and high power density. This enables the optimization of thermal performance, effective daylighting, glare control and power generation. Solaria’s solar windows are easily customizable and offer design flexibility to adjust for a wide variety of sizes, glass type dimensions, coatings, Vt, and voltage.
